On August 29, 1957, the United States congress passed the civil rights act of 1957. This was the first act of Civil Rights legislation since Reconstruction in America. The act helps to protect every U.S. citizen’s right to vote and establishes a Civil Rights Commission whose duty is to investigate acts of discrimination and injustice. The Act also led to the creation of a Civil Rights Division within the Department of Justice.
Join us for a program celebrating Civil Rights featuring the Floyd Central & New Albany Choirs under the direction of Ms. Angela Hampton and Ms. Linda DeRungs. Also featuring: Dr. Roosevelt Escalante, Jr., Assistant Director of Choral Activities at Morehead State University.
This event is free and open to the community
